This is a question School Sports Day

At some point in the distant past, someone at my school had built a large concrete tank behind the sheds and called it a swimming pool. Proud of this, they had a "Swimming Sports Day" in which everyone had to participate, even those who couldn't swim (they got to walk across the shallow end of the tank).

This would probably have been OK if the pool hadn't turned a deep opaque green the night before due to lack of maintainance. Even the school sports stars didn't want to go near the gloopy mess in the pool. We were practically pushed in. I'm sure some of the younger kids never surfaced again and the non-swimmers looked petrified.

Tell us your sports day horrors.

Escaped Pods
Not exactly sports day, but preparation for said event:

We were doing class trials for various events (we're talking Year 10, 3rd Form, etc), and I had been put in the 200m running thing (wasn't really into the sports stuff at the time). So, it comes round for my go, and I am bolting down toward the finish line, and I'm winning, when I notice that everyone around the finish is laughing. I thought that perhaps someone had taken a tumble...

But no, the laughter was directed at my testicles, which had escaped from my shorts and were flapping about for all to see. Very, very embarrassing.
